Description
If English is your second language and you want to express yourself with greater clarity, confidence, and accuracy, turn to this book. Speech expert Lisa Mojsin gives you all of the advice and instruction you're looking for, along with specific exercises that will help you perfect your accent. Concentrate on vowel sounds, problematic consonants such as TH, V, W, and the American R and L, and more. You'll also learn to stress the correct syllables of each word and link your words rhythmically for more natural, American-sounding speech. This program's native language guide helps you by referencing problematic accent issues of 13 different language backgrounds. A helpful link to downloadable audio of male and female voices will also coach you as you practice American-style pronunciation.
